Here is the BBC version of Mitt Romney inadvertently saying what everyone knows to be true. Indeed, it has even been suggested in some quarters that Romney may not be a born liar.
A secretly filmed video has emerged showing Mitt Romney disparaging Barack Obama voters at a private donor dinner.
The Republican nominee is shown saying the 47% of Americans who back the president do not pay income tax and would never vote for Mr Romney.
"I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives," Mr Romney says.
